Documents installed by the distribution (i.e. /usr/share and its subdirectories)

Please see the Candidate Handbook for additional information covering policies, procedures and rules during the exam.
The exam environment consists of a base node (hostname:node-1 ) and a number of LXD containers and remote nodes on which certain questions must be answered. Those LXD containers and remote nodes are accessible via ssh , using a command such as the following: ssh <nodename>
You will be directed to ssh into appropriate containers and remote nodes, where needed, at the start of each question.
If no ssh instruction is provided, you must answer the question on the base node (hostname: node-1).
When you have finished working on a node other than node-1 , you must ensure that you return to node-1 when you have completed the item.
Nested ssh is not supported.
~/.ssh/config is configured appropriately for both the root and student users to ssh to all nodes as root, and you can also find entries in /etc/hosts for all containers/remote nodes that may be required during your exam for your reference.
You should avoid rebooting node-1 , as the supporting infrastructure will take around 15 minutes to start, and stabilize.
You are free to reboot any node other than node-1 at any time.
You may obtain root privileges at any time using the following command: sudo -i
You should not manipulate the firewall on the base node (hostname: node-1 ).
Root privileges can be obtained by running 'sudo −i'.
Do not stop or tamper with the certerminal process as this will END YOUR EXAM SESSION.
Do not block incoming ports 8080/tcp, 4505/tcp and 4506/tcp. This includes firewall rules that are found within the distribution's default firewall configuration files as well as interactive firewall commands.
Use Ctrl+Alt+W instead of Ctrl+W.
Ctrl+W is a keyboard shortcut that will close the current tab in Google Chrome.
The Terminal (Terminal Emulator Application) is a Linux terminal - in order to copy & paste within the Linux Terminal you need to use LINUX keyboard shortcuts:
Copy = Ctrl+SHIFT+C (inside the terminal)
Paste = Ctrl+SHIFT+V (inside the terminal)
OR Use the Right Click Context Menu and select Copy or Paste
